The Temple in Jerusalem




















 There will be a new temple rebuilt before the middle of the Tribulation because Daniel 9:27 states that the
 antichrist will stop the sacrificial system to stop.


27    Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;

    But in the middle of the week

    He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.

    And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,

    Even until the consummation, which is determined,

    Is poured out on the desolate.”


 There has not been a single animal sacrifice since 70 AD as I write the Sanhedrin is now established and is now

  training priests to reinstitute the sacrificial system. Below is an actual link to their website.

The Re-established Jewish Sanhedrin

 The abomination desolation described in Daniel 9:27 is stated in more detail in 2 Thessalonians 2.

1Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of £Christ had come. 3Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of £sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits £as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only £He who now restrains will do so until £He is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 According to
2 Thessalonians 2:7 The restrainer who is the Holy Spirit has to be taken out before the antichrist is revealed How will the Holy Spirit be taken out. The obvious answer is the rapture of the church since the Holy Spirit indwells every true believer. Verse 4 is fulfilled in the middle of the Tribulation which is in agreement with Daniel 9:27.

The antichrist is revealed when he signs the middle east peace treaty according to Daniel 9:27.

Does the Temple need to be built before the rapture?

The answer is no. The Temple must be completed before the middle of  Tribulation.

What about the Dome of the Rock which some believe where the Temple belongs?

Some scholars believe the Temple mount belongs several hundred yards away from the Dome of the Rock.

One possibility is that part of the covenant the antichrist makes with Israel in
Daniel 9:27
is permission to rebuild the Temple.
